Bound together, the 10 captives watched their Buddhist neighbours dig a shallow grave.
They offer evidence of a massacre believed to have taken place on the morning of 2 September previous year, after the arrival of troops in the village of Inn Din drove its Rohingya inhabitants to flee.
"At least two were hacked to death by Buddhist villagers". Reuters says the two men are innocent of wrongdoing and were arrested for doing their jobs, as "journalists who perform a crucial role in shedding light on issues of global interest".
The United States says a Reutersreport about the massacre of Muslims previous year has highlighted the need for an independent and credible investigation into allegations of atrocities in northern Rakhine State.

"We thought it was time to go with it".
Human Rights Watch said Myanmar's military leaders should be held accountable in an worldwide court for alleged crimes against the Rohingya population. "Their only crime was to take an interest in the atrocities by Myanmar's security forces against the country's Rohingya minority, which resulted in an exodus of around 700,000 refugees", Daniel Bastard, head of Reporters Without Borders' Asia-Pacific desk, told The Washington Post via email.
